Preferred Solution: vista beta 2, what directx version it comes with?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: vista beta 2, what directx version it comes with?

What version of Vista is Vista Beta RC1 a beta version of? Ultimate? This is the first beta of Vista that I have installed.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Vista beta is beta of what version?

Yes RC1 is Vista Ultimate. If you setup user accounts /w password and not automatically logging in then you see that right at the bottom of the logon screen. As well as under the system properties. Actually there quite a few places that displays it.

Have fun with it and give as much feedback to Microsoft as possible.

I need help with a directx problem. This started months ago. The problem is that certain games do not recognize what version of DirectX I have installed and tell me I need to upgrade despite having 9.0c.

Here is a screenshot of DxDiag, showing my DirectX version as well as the error message generated by a game when I try to install it: http://img489.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dx22nj.jpg
When I do try to upgrade, the installation fails. I have tried reinstalling 9.0c with both the web and redistributable version as well as of the most recent updates to them and I get this error every time I try to install as soon as it first begins to search for components to update.

Answer:After recovery, I get "You are running a non-supported beta version of Vista"

A way around this is to go into the Windows Live toolbar folder, find the uninstall exe and right click on the uninstall exe select run as administrator.

Hey! I'm having problems with installing DirectX 9.0c!

I would like to try this method to fix it. But I can't find any DirectX9.0b! Do anyone out there know where I can download DirectX 9.0b full version/package!? I've goolged everywhere and tried limewire and I still can't find it! I've been looking for 3+ hours! I'm about to go crazy! :dead:




Wed Jun 29, 2005 6:07 am
I HAVE A SOLUTION!!!!

Well it worked for me anyway.

You need both the 9.0b and 9.0c full versions. both around 30Mb each. Unzip both to respective temp folders. then copy and paste the following from 9.0b to 9.0c:

dxsetup
dsetup32.dll
DSETUP.dll

next you need a direct x uninstaller. i used dx eradicator from majorgeeks.com, bu there are plenty around

once done simply run dxsetup in the 9.0c version (which would be the one you copied before right) and it will install using the files from the folder it is in. and there you go you have installed directx 9.0c.Click to expand...

Thanks!

Hey guys check this out(a quote from www.ign.com):

"...9.0 beta should begin sometime this summer, with a general release sometime this fall. Beta testers will be privy to all the latest DirectX 9.0 announcements on the private DirectX 9.0 forums."
 

Answer:DirectX 9.0 Beta

Seing as their final releases aren't always stable ( DirectX 8.0a anyone ), I think I won't be jumping on that train anytime soon. Once games require it to run, we'll have no choice, bus as for now DX 8.1 works fine.

Hiya

I've put this in this forum, even though it has Win98/Me included, due to the fact that its an Beta version, and not a full version.

Microsoft DirectX is a group of technologies designed to make Windows-based computers an ideal platform for running and displaying applications rich in multimedia elements such as full-color graphics, video, 3D animation, and rich audio. DirectX 9.0 includes security and performance updates, along with many new features across all technologies, which can be accessed by applications using the DirectX 9.0 APIs.

System Requirements

Supported Languages:

Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Dutch, English (American), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish, Swedish

Operating System - Windows 98 & 2000 & Windows Me, Win XP

This is an unsupported Pre-Release version of DirectX 9.0 and may contain bugs or issues that prevent correct operation of DirectX applications. The DirectX 9.0 runtime cannot be uninstalled. We recommend that this pre-release only be installed on Windows ME or Windows XP systems, and that users create a “System Restore” point before installing. Failure to create a system restore point may require users to reinstall Windows if a critical issue is discovered. Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, and Windows 2000 do not support the “System Restore” feature.

There is a real easy way to figure it out. What OS are you running? XP can only have DX9. Vista can have DX11 but you have to download it with SP2. It wont work unless you have SP2. Win7 comes with DX11 by default.

My Win2000 sys will not install the newest version of DirectX. I?m trying to of course play some games and they will not open due to not having DirectX 8 or higher. I?m getting error message:The enter point Ddentry1 could not be found in the dynamic link library Gdi32.dll. I have installed and reinstalled the latest version but still no luck. I have also gone into the Diagnostic Tool (dxdiag) and it shows all the .dll?s as version 5.3 instead of the latest 9.0. The DirectX install states that it is complete but it seems that all the dll?s are not updating to the new version. I have also uninstalled the reinstalled the games with no luck. I have also tried all the fixes found on Microsoft.com. What next? ThanksLT

Answer:Directx Will Not Update New Version

Hi Lady T, welcome to BC.The .dll file versions listed on the DirectX files tab in dxdiag do not designate the installed version of DirectX.In other words, the dll's will not be version 9. Most will be 5.03 -6.05, depending on the installed version.To see the version installed, look on the "System" tab of dxdiag near the bottom. That tells you what version you have. It would seem however that a particular version of "d3d8thk.dll" may be the issue.See this thread for a possible fix specific to Win2k posted by "Jon".

So I was wondering whether it was necessary to "update" DirectX after a fresh install of Windows 7 with SP1 included, or is the latest already in SP1?

Answer:Latest version of DirectX already included in SP1?

You may want to do the update, but it would be to install some older DirectX components that Microsoft didn't include with Windows 7.

I suggest using the redist (redistributable) version, rather than the Web update. It's a moderately large download, though. I think that the latest version is June 2010.

So I am thinking that my vid card either can't handle D10 or some other issue. Is it possible to revert to 9.0c from 10?

Hello, I have a corei3 3.10Ghz second generation processor which comes with an intel HD2000 (sandy bridge) internal graphics memory.
When I was used to use windows7, I installed Directx 11 but it always showed 10.1
I searched online and people said HD2000 wont support DirectX11.

Few months ago when windows 10 came online, I upgraded my OS. and Suddenly my directX version is 11.1.
I tried running "dxdiag" quite a few times and it was 11.1 without any doubt.
Infact it seems like few games that didnt run on my pc before, are running fine now.

What happened? Is it really directX 11? or its just showing that?

Answer:Confused about my directX version, anyone available to clarify?

If it works for you then it must be okay. Are you sure games tested where native dx11?

Ive downloaded directX 9.0c and all that i see on my desktop ar books which i extracted with win.rar so there into folders now what do i do??? On Steam(For Counter Strike: Source) it says my graphics card is versoin 6.14.10.3720
Any help wud be grately apreasheated
 

Answer:How do I download a newer version of directX ???

the books are the unextracted files. you need to go into the folder that you extracted the files into. once you're in that folder there should be a "setup" icon, click that and it should start the installation.

otherwise try this one ,it is a .exe version (not a .rar version), it should install itself once clicked on.

good luck

Hi all.

here are the specs of my machine.

I have windows XP SP2, AMD K7 processor, Nvidia Geforce FX5200 with 128MB ram, 512MB ram with 219.29MB free, 224GB HD, DirectX 9.0c.

One of the games I am trying to run is "Requiem, Avenging angel" from 3DO.

I have played games on PC now for the last 10 years plus. I still have a lot of my older games which I used to run on my old machine running Win 98b with the older DirectX versions. I would like to be able to keep playing them, but games which use DirectX versions older than 7 cannot detect DX 9.

I have heard of some software which tells (lies to) the software that the version is what it wants. If this software exists or if there is any other workaround I would be very interested in any help at all with this issue.

How do you find out or tell which DirectX version you have installed on your Windows 10 / 8 / 7 PC?
To confirm and check which version of DirectX you have installed on your computer, this is what you will need to do on your Windows 10 / 8 / 7 computer! Go to Start, type dxdiag and hit Enter. Under the System tab, you will see the DirectX version installed on your computer.
On Windows 10, you will see DirectX Version 12. Related reads: DirectX download, update, install: Windows 10 / 8 / 7 Run DirectX Diagnostic Tool: Troubleshoot DirectX problems.

When I run the Performance and System Information under the section "Graphics" is lists DirectX vsersion at DirectX 10. When I run dxdiag, it should DirectX Version to be DirectX 11. The card literature says 11. Which is true?

Answer:Performance Information Reports Different DirectX version

It may depend on your GPU. That is, it might only be compatible up to DirectX 10. Do you know which video card or onboard GPU you have?

Edit: I just realized I didn't see "The card literature says 11". I was pretty sleepy when I posted, so I apologize.

I have upgraded my OS to Windows 10 which has DirectX version 12.

After upgrading, I installed GTA4 game in it. Now directx version changed to 10.1.

How can I get directX 12 back?

Thanks

Answer:DirectX version downgraded to 10.2 after game installation

You still have DX12. GTA IV only uses up to DX10.1 though.

If you want to check your DX version, open start and type dxdiag, then launch the program that pops up. Keep in mind that DirectX Feature Levels could be lower than 12 based on what video card you have.

Hi guys, I have problem with BSOD when playing dota 2 (it rarely happens, but it gets annoying when it happens). I also have the same problem when playing resident evil 5 version dX10.

attachment attached.

thank you for your help,

Answer:BSOD when playing dota2, resident evil 5 directX 10 version

You are running a Fujitsu Product ID (PID) on a Vvikoo board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Code:
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner: intel
Registered Organization:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00009 <-- Fujitsu PID on Vvikoo board
Original Install Date: 02/12/2015, 20:14:37
System Boot Time: 20/12/2015, 9:08:05
System Manufacturer: VVIKOO Corps.
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Trend Micro are proud to announce the release of HijackThis version 2.0.2. This is the first non-beta release of HijackThis since our first release back in March. We since have been working alongside many HijackThis support communities to ensure that our changes reflect their needs. New features and fixes are listed below.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with HijackThis, it is a free software utility that generates an in depth report of registry and system settings by scanning your Windows computer. The resulting log file can be examined by experienced users or web-forum helpers to determine what may have infected your PC. HijackThis makes no separation between safe and unsafe settings in its scan results. Expert users are provided the ability to selectively remove items from your PC, such as malicious or unwanted software. In addition to this scan and remove capability HijackThis comes with several tools useful in manually removing malware from a computer.

A common practice for novice users is to generate a HijackThis log file and submit it one of the many web-forums devoted to helping people fix their computers by using HijackThis. Experts at these forums provide information on which items are causing your problems and how to remove them safely from your computer.

New features include:

I am using a Vista based system. I downloaded the IE8 (beta) from the MS site. Everything seemed to work fine in the compatability mode, except for my games from Real Arcade. The support people at RA say that they are only compatable with IE7, and that I should reinstall it. Since I have large portfolio of games with them, I am frustrated at not being able to use them. I have deceided to switch back to IE7, but I cannot find how to do so. I have tried resetting the internet settings thru the control panel, but that didn't work. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to uninstall IE8 and reinstall IE7? Thanks.

Answer:How to undo IE Version 8 (beta)?

To uninstall IE8 beta 1 or 2 from Vista, go to Control Panel, Programs &
Features, then click on "View installed updates", you will find IE8 there &
you can now select 'Uninstall'.
After a restart, your Vista will have reverted to IE7.

What will be the easiest way to install it?

Reload my PC with Vista, then upgrade using the student version?

Thanks!

Answer:Beta Version upgrading

Did you download or do you have a disc? If you downloaded, then burn it to disk and do a clean install would be my recommendation. Make bootable iso from student d/l

Hope this helps.
